Lavish craftsmanship of Seventh Century Anglo Saxon Bible

Among the more than 4000 items within the Staffordshire Hoard are these beautiful fragments of the binding of an Anglo Saxon Bible in use before 680 AD.

Taken from a Bible or other Holy book they represent some of the most beautiful objects in the Hoard and reveal the care and artistry of the craftsman who made them.
